All these, then, being dissolved, what kind of persons doth it behove you to be in holy behaviours and pious acts?
waiting for and hasting to the presence of the day of God, by which the heavens, being on fire, shall be dissolved, and the elements with burning heat shall melt;
and for new heavens and a new earth according to His promise we do wait, in which righteousness doth dwell;
wherefore, beloved, these things waiting for, be diligent, spotless and unblameable, by Him to be found in peace,
and the long-suffering of our Lord count ye salvation, according as also our beloved brother Paul -- according to the wisdom given to him -- did write to you,
as also in all the epistles, speaking in them concerning these things, among which things are certain hard to be understood, which the untaught and unstable do wrest, as also the other Writings, unto their own destruction.
